Lens less camera's - add touch to viewing a photo?

Saw this on the BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-21057270 and wondered if allowing a car to 'see' objects might also one day translate into allowing a photo of a object to add touch to the experience.
Say you shot a vegetable still life and had a Haptics device on which to feel and see images - could you get the texture feel of say a cauliflower?

If you could record and deliver texture in your images - would you? Would Art you can see & touch be more beautiful/compelling than Art you can just see? Or would they just sit side by side like painting's and sculpture?

Would blind photography become a new art form or genre - texture alone free from colour or shading?
